Editors' Review

Google Search facilitates the use of Google's powerful online search engine and can also help you find local files more quickly. What's more, it has the ability to provide you with real-time weather and other personalized updates based on your location.

Pros

Reliable voice search: With Google Search's voice feature you can get directions, send emails, set reminders, find quick answers to questions, play media, set alarms, and more. Because of its accuracy and accessibility -- you just have to tap the mic button or say "Ok Google" to launch it -- it's a great feature for when you're driving or multitasking in the office.

Google Now: A smart feature integrated into the app, Google Now determines your location and keeps track of your search results to provide you with real-time, personalized information such as weather reports for home and work, important traffic updates including alternative routes, the latest matches your favorite sports teams play, and more. We were surprised by how well this feature worked, and it proved to be really helpful on a daily basis.

Handy search filter: At the bottom of the app window you'll find a toolbar through which you can search only for certain types of content, such as Images, Videos, Maps, News, etc.

Cons

Browser dependent: This app requires a browser to open up search results, which means that you have to keep switching between it and your browser.

Not essential: If you use Chrome, Firefox, or any other mobile browser with an integrated Google searchbox, you don't really need this app.

Bottom Line

Google Search makes searching easy, though it's by no means indispensable -- your browser can search the Web just as well. That said, this app does offer a capable voice feature and smart, personalized reports and updates that make it worthwhile. Most Android devices come with it pre-installed, so it may already be on your smartphone or tablet.
